The Dixie State Trailblazers will be playing their first game of the season when they take the field on Saturday. The big issue about Dixie State is there are a lot of questions surrounding this team and they probably won’t get answered until after this game. Dixie State played their last football in DII and now there has been a long layoff, since they have played. The good news for this Dixie State team is they do have some playmakers. Under center will be quarterback Kody Wilstead and he is going to have playmakers outside that will need to have a big game in this one. On defense there are a lot of questions, but if they want to win this game, the Trailblazers are going to need to probably create a few turnovers.
On the other side of this matchup is the Tarleton State Texans who have played two games so far this year and they with a 1-1 record overall. After losing the first game of the season in overtime against McNeese State, Tarleton State was impressive in their last game against New Mexico State.

Tarleton State is the better team, and he is going to have no issue running up the score in this game. Look for Dixie State to struggle to score, and that will lead to Tarleton State coming away with a cover of the spread.
